PHUKET, Thailand - is sailing off to the 11th annual Samui Regatta from May 28 to June 2 with unique promotional deals for customers looking to book hotels in Koh Samui.

According to Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey, the Samui Regatta has continued to grow in importance on the Asian yachting scene over the last few years.

"In 2012, yachts from Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and the United Kingdom will be taking part comprising over 500 crew members hailing from more than 20 countries. It is the last official regatta in the annual 8-race Asian Yachting Grand Prix series with the overall results often decided by the Samui Regatta.

"Like Koh Samui, this race is a little more laid back than other regattas held in the grand prix series. The night life and parties are very popular and open to any travelers who are lucky enough to be staying in Koh Samui during the event," he added.

Koh Samui has long been considered one the most naturally beautiful islands in Asia by many tourists traveling the region.
